Here’s how it started.
I wondered what would happen if people wrote for five minutes a day for five consecutive days, free-flow style. I wondered what would happen if people understood and used the power of just dumping their thoughts on the page without attachment, without editing, without worrying about grammar or content or style.
It was an experiment we carried out using live streaming as the context and writing prompts coupled with free flow writing, otherwise known as brain dumping, as the content.
It was an experiment that had a huge impact on the people who showed up and wrote either in community or who showed up individually.
After the success of our first five consecutive day session, I decided to gather on Wednesdays as well. I called this experience “Bonus Wednesdays” and we added Scope Trains after our 3 pm and 8 pm sessions so that people who chose to could share their writing immediately after the words were written.
It was scary and exhilarating. It was dynamic and life changing.
Our September session begins on Monday, September 19 AND our bonus Wednesdays are continuing throughout September. Live streams will meet on Periscope at 6 am, 3 pm and 8 pm. We will add Facebook live broadcasts as well, with times to be established.
